What Are Microgreens?

I’ve been loving the addition of microgreens to my meals lately. They are so good for! Did you know that researchers found microgreens like red cabbage, cilantro, and radish contain up to 40 times higher levels of vital nutrients than their mature counterparts? And, I’m sure you are wondering what they are exactly?

Microgreens are young seedlings of edible vegetables and herbs harvested less than 14 days after germination. You can buy them at the grocery store or grow your own microgreens at home through a kit like Hamama Grow Kits!
